    I can't think of a better school district to work in.

    Teacher, Elementary School (Current Employee) Conroe, TX

    ProsInclusive of all learners, much opportunity and expectation of professional growth, clear and consistent in expectations, wonderful sense of community, excellent superintendent

    ConsHuge amounts of testing. Day long benchmarks in every subject, three times per year, in addition to literacy assessments at least 3 times per year that take days to complete for all class members. Weekly common assessments in reading and math which may also take an entire test day for each. However, this is not entirely the district's fault. Sign of the times....

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone. I love working there!

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Horrible leadership with sub par working conditions

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThere were no Pros to this job. There was no way to grow or improve your job position and the central office was not supportive of staff promotions of any kind. You had to be one of the 'good ole boys' to rise above a base level in this district.

    ConsThe administration was more concerned with making good news than actually teaching or reaching its students. The main goal of central office was to look as politically correct and as good as possible while doing as little as possible in the classroom to help students or support teachers.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good job if you want to sacrifice salary for school schedule. You are off holidays and summers.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros37.5 hrs per week, plus off all school holidays and the summer.

    ConsVery low pay, with a lot of responsibilities and no room to promote and very low (less than .10/hr) annual raises, if any.

    Advice to Senior ManagementParas are the backbone of the school. You are losing excellent, dedicated employees because you expect way too much for way too little pay.

    It's a great district!

    Educator (Former Employee) The Woodlands, TX

    ProsCISD has the best administration I have ever worked with. Everybody works for improving the educational experience for the children.

    ConsYou will work really hard here. I don't know if that's a con, but you need to know that this district makes sure they follow every law, and consequently everyone has extra work.

    Fair experience as a Sub in Conroe ISD.

    Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) Conroe, TX

    ProsI like being able to set my own weekly schedule. I can pick and choose dates to sub. I work as much or as little as I want.

    ConsThe pay is not the best. It is hard to survive off what is given.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI heard CISD employees got a raise "across the board" this school year. Including Subs in the "board" would be beneficial to all: Subs & teachers alike.
